The Bath Festival: The Gesualdo Six at the Roman Baths

Starts

An amazing opportunity to experience the hottest choral group around in the astonishing setting of Bath’s Roman Baths. They perform a programme of ravishing a cappella music around the theme of water. Italy is represented by choral masterpieces by Palestrina, Monteverdi and Gesualdo.

Closer to home they sing English renaissance music by Byrd, Campion and Tomkins as well as contemporary works and arrangements by David Bednall, Cristen Holmes, Vaughan-Williams and the group’s director Owain Park. The evening fades away with Wilbye’s miraculous Draw on Sweet Night.
